Thanks Howard Chu for the comments from the librtmp side.
My patch to this somehow controversial issue maintains that:

1. MRL is not passed straight to librtmp, so updating the plugin is
required if librtmp gets new parameters.
2. MRL is not required to conform to librtmp specifics, e.g. spaces in
the connection setup string.
3. All parameters in addition to the MRL are passed as VLC options, so
the plugin can intercept and also use the parameter values, e.g.
whether live stream or not.

Whether this is a good approach or not, it is up to you, comments are
more than welcome :-)
